The aim of this study was to evaluate the in vitro antioxidant and cytotoxic activities of the methanol extractsof Retama raetam subsp. gussonei leaves and seeds. The antioxidant activity of the extracts was assessed bymeans of two different tests: (1) bleaching of the stable 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazil (DPPH) radical; and(2) lipid peroxidation of liposomes which were prepared from bovine brain extract. In both tests used leavesextract showed a significant antioxidant effect. The extract of leaves also demonstrated a good cytotoxicactivity against COR-L23 (large cell carcinoma) cell line.
